Project Title & Description
Environmental Justice - Citizens Environment Coalition
This project seeks to increase the Seneca County, NY community residents' involvement and understanding of the environmental, health and climate change impacts related to the Seneca Meadows Landfill. The Citizens Environmental Coalition will conduct air quality screening to monitor the fugitive emission gases from the landfill. The air monitoring study will be used to determine if the air quality near those residents living around the landfill is within national air quality standards. Furthermore, the recipient will educate residents on solid waste disposal practices, and develop a waste plan to reduce the landfill waste intake.
